do you ever have songs follow you? for days you keep hearing an old song on different stations? i often wonder what it means...am i supposed to be taking a cue from this song? is there a reason it's following me from radio station to radio station? and it's especially weird when it gets played on a station that ordinarily wouldn't play that kind of music!

so i had a dream a few weeks back, very vivid dream of dancing in a moonlit field with a man in a leather jacket and van morrison's "moondance" was playing. very clearly, i heard every word to the song in this dream. i never saw the man's face but i know he had short hair and he was taller than me, but not by a whole lot as i could see over his shoulder. i could see the stars and they were soooo bright.

i forgot about the dream, until last wednesday. the song started following me. i heard it 3 times last week and once on a hard rock station...how weird! i've heard it twice today alone. once when coming into work, then at lunch when i had to run to the store (on a completely different channel, mind you). i love this song. it's particularly magickal! so i'm not complaining that it's following me, but i feel that it must have meaning.

well it's a marvelous night for a moondance
with the stars up above in your eyes
a fantabulous night to make romance
'neath the cover of october skies
and all the leaves on the trees are falling
to the sound of the breezes that blow
and i'm trying to please to the calling
of your heart-strings that play soft and low
you know the night's magic
seems to whisper and hush
and all the soft moonlight
seems to shine in your blush...
can i just have one more moondance with you, my love?
can i just make some more romance with a' you, my love?
well i wanna make love to you tonight
i can't wait till the morning has come
and i know now the time is just right
and straight into my arms you will run
and when you come my heart will be waiting
to make sure that you're never alone
there and then all my dreams will come true dear
there and then i will make you my own
and every time i touch you, you just tremble inside
and i know how much you want me that, you can't hide...
can i just have one more moondance with you, my love?
can i just make some more romance with you, my love?


yes i know there is a central theme here and it is certainly not an unwelcome theme! i just wonder...am i reading too much into this? is there a message tucked in here other than the obvious? am i just projecting my feelings? i don't believe in coincidence; i believe that everything happens for a reason and it is up to us to determine why. but is the answer to the why that love lies in wait for me this fall or is it reaffirming that i'm just looking for a little magic in my life right now? so many questions.

i think this almost falls in line with believing in superstitions. i guess what i'm doing is searching for hope for that aspect of my life that is sincerely lacking, to know that there are good guys out there (hopeless romantics) and that soon enough, when the time is right, i will find who i need...not that i need to define myself by a relationship. i've already learned that lesson and it is the reason that i'm single now and have been for a few years (well, that and creepy blind date guys who don't get hints).

okay so a bit of a morose ending to this post, yet kind of hope-filled. lets change it to completely hope-filled and happy (ever the optimist, i am)...as a testament to true love, i charge you all with creating a little romance for your significant other tonight...or if you're single, create a little joy for yourself. i think i'll go buy myself some flowers!

enjoy, all!!

Thismorning I woke up to Woody Guthrie in my head singing "Worried Man Blues", by the afternoon The White Stripes had muscled in and "My Doorbell" refused to leave... and later, Bob Marley with his "Buffalo Soldier"... it's pretty noisy in my head!
Hope you picked out a wonderful bunch of flowers for yourself.
take care, gracia

some songs can be annoying, but it sounds like you've got some good ones floating around in there, gracia!
